The Sangamon Experience at the University of Illinois Springfield (UIS) will present five live-streamed historical discussions at 6 p.m. on Wednesdays in March.

The series of live-streamed discussions is part of their “Women’s History Month: Community Trailblazers” series.

We are told the series plans to highlight women who have impacted their community here in central Illinois throughout the month.

Programs will cover women who helped run the family farm, fought for pensions to care for their families, led 4-H to strive to improve their lives and the lives of others, and ran for a political office.

All of the programs will be live-streamed on the Sangamon Experience Facebook page here and YouTube Channel here.
